Clarks names new chief executive

Clarks has appointed Jonathan Ram as its new chief executive.

Born and raised in Canada, Ram has extensive experience in the footwear and apparel sector after working as group president of global activewear at Hanes Brands. He also spent sixteen years working with New Balance where he ran the LATAM, EMEA and North American businesses at various points.

Colin Li, chairman of Clarks, said: “I am pleased to welcome Jon to Clarks as our new CEO. He brings significant global experience and understanding of the footwear and apparel market. In the last year Clarks has implemented a focused turnaround strategy designed to protect the future of the business, and to build a foundation for sustainable growth in the years ahead.

“With the appointment of Jon as CEO we now look forward to a new phase where we will focus on growing our business in current and new markets and channels, and Jon will take a leading role in taking Clarks to the next level.”

Due to join the business in April, Ram will succeed the retailer’s previous chairman, Johnny Chen, who took on the role of chief executive on an interim basis after Victor Herrero stepped down in November.

Ram added: “Clarks is an iconic brand with a rich history in shoe making craftsmanship, expertise and sustainability. It is truly an honour to be given the opportunity to lead the Clarks business and work with such a talented team.  Significant progress has been made in the last year and my focus is on taking the company to the next level of growth and success. We have a lot to do, and I am excited to begin the journey.”
